defined plan. when the president talks about $5 trillion, he's talking about five tax breaks that romney has already promised so it's the estate tax plus a.m.t. plus keeping bush, plus lowering rates plus cutting capital gains taxes. you put them together, they add up to 5 trillion but in romney's mind his plan may be just saving the bush tax cuts or one of these five. >> what obama has done is landfalled onto a study that says because the math doesn't add up according to th experts, therefore what romney is going to do is raise taxes on the middle class. he goes around saying that as if it was romney's intent. that's not romney's intent. romney god -- got to say the president is the one who's not telling the truthecaui woul do . >> a romney advisor last week said we have two goals. one is deficit reduction, one is tax cuts. cuts ie w we'll do deficit reduction. gwen: there's anoth numbe $716 million to deal with medicare but it's coming from different places and going to different places and trefore th fin - of de u in a draw. >> for the president's health care plan, in order to fund it

romney was on a lot of defense, the president was mentioning hiring teachers, talking about preexisting conditions, talking about pell grants. he's talking to the swing voters so it wasn't a total loss for him. gwen: here's what the president was not talking about. the gender wars we've been talking about so much. immigration. gay marriage or gay rights, the housing bubble collapse, the auto bailout, which he alluded to a couple of times but didn't take the credit. it seemed like there were lots of missed opportunities for talking about what he had done and what he would do. >> he was asked what is the difference between you two on social security? a very big hot button issue and he said there isn't that big a difference. he missed an opportunity to say, actually, governor romney's running mate has a plan to put some funds into investment accounts. >> one of the reasons that incumbent presidents in their first debates have trouble is because they've not been subjected to the kind of close-in combat that you see in a debate. when you're president you are surrounded by people

benghazi. gwen: and yet we've seen mitt romney and paul ryan continuing to talk about this every single day. which is interesting. because we are told that americans aren't voting on foreign policy issues. and yet here is one that won't go away. >> it's interesting also because this issue is -- is an issue that until quite recently, president obama had a huge lead against -- gwen: you were saying osama bin laden and the conversation would end. >> the polls do suggest they are chipping away at that. it's an interesting strategy, though, because as one republican strategist who's worried about it told me, when you start playing on those issues, you are playing on the commander in chief's turf. and the only time that that has ever really worked and made a difference in an election was with jimmy carter. gwen: and one of the things that joe biden was trying to do was to get back at that is to put the grinning and the smiling and the condescension was to try to say i know this guy. you can back up on this. and even on domestic issues, like the stimulus. which the republicans have always criticiz

talking about the foreign policy. but really, what governor romney and congressman paul ryan are trying to do is have people sort of throw everything in a basket. the economy, other things. and just overall urge voters to have a second look at the leadership that this administration has. and are they in control? are they in charge of things? what vice president is trying to do, you know, he was hectoring and interrupting and interjecting and he was trying to jolt voters, i think. and saying hold on. democrats, maybe some independents who might have been swayed last week to push them in the middle. there aren't that many people who are these undecided voters. i spent several days in ohio this week. and it's really hard to find someone who hasn't made up their mind. at least attending the rallies and even at coffee shops. so it's all right now about building up their bases. and meantime, the ground campaigns for both sides are trying to find these undecided voters and try to reach out to them through tv ads and other things. all about leadership, i think. at this point. gwen: all a
